WHAT: EuforiA Alphabetical Order necklace
WHY: We love a little whimsy, and this multi-strand necklace has it in spades. The handmade necklace features Swarovski crystal accents and silver and gold letter charms for a quirky take on the ubiquitous charm necklaces. (It reminds us a little bit of Carey Mulligan's Prada Oscars dress with the petite silverware charms, non?)

WHAT: Paige Novick Hope bracelet
WHY: The vintage coin in this leather charm bracelet reads L’union est la force (“there is strength in unity"), which is certainly a motto we could use reminding of toujours. But in addition to a chic little addition to your tangle of everyday bracelets, this one happens to do more: designer Paige Novick teamed up with her friend Lu Simon—who happens to be Haitian—to create this leather charm bracelet to benefit the New York Dermatology Group’s Haiti Disaster Relief Benefit. Lovely and charitable? Done and done.

WHAT: Sunday Riley Juno Transformative Lipid Serum
WHY: Another day, another truly obsession-worthy summer skincare solution--but while SK-II's serum will leave your visage gorgeously matte and dry to the touch, new skincare line Sunday Riley's serum is purely a blend of oils, like acai, argan, blackberry seed, chardonnay grape seed, and even broccoli seed oils. It may sound scary to slather a summer face in oil, but we just can't get enough. It won't leave you greasy, but absolutely glowing--and the natural retinol, Omega-3, 6, & 9, essential amino acids, Vitamin C, UV shields, and natural anti-inflammatory agents don't hurt, either. Consider your dewy skin dreams fulfilled!

WHAT: Martin Katz micro bands
WHY: Easter may have passed, but we're still obsessed with the array of pretty pastel shades that took over--if just for one day. Why not deck out your fingers in bands of similar colors? Martin Katz's stackable bands come in every color combination imaginable (we're partial to to the rose gold and pink diamond variety), so there's really something for everyone.
PRICE: $2,400-6,500 each
